Monday 20th July 2020, Surbiton, London: KT Online Craft Fair has announced the date for their second online craft fair to be held from Friday 24th July at www.ktonlinecraftfair.co.uk where local small businesses who make and sell their products, as well as local and national charities, will be supported.
KT Online Craft Fair was set up by local small business owner, Kate Chambers, when she and her business partner experienced a dramatic decrease in sales at the start of the Corona Virus pandemic. In a bid to help boost their own business as well as help fellow small business owners and crafters, Kate set up the online fair to help showcase local KT area post code talent.
The initial online craft fair in May was hosted via Facebook, however, KT Online Craft Fair has launched a new website to compliment the Facebook shop. All the sellers are hosted free of charge and work collaboratively with KT Online Craft Fair in promoting the fair via all social media channels as well as their own online shops.
“The initial fair was a taster for us all and, although it was a challenge, we have built up an amazing network of small businesses where we share invaluable tips and help support each other” says Kate, co-founder of Paper & Cotton and owner of KT Online Craft Fair.
One of the featured charities for the upcoming sale is the RNLI. As many of us will be heading to the coast and rivers for some much needed sun and fun, the RNLI will continue to be on standby to assist those in distress in the ocean and on our major rivers. The aim is help with awareness and encourage sellers and shoppers alike to make a donation.
Confirmed sellers include: Paper & Cotton, Soakind UK, Gypsy Hearts, Birds & Dandelions, The Treasure Kave, The Pottery and Craft Studio, Intuitive Oils, Made by Lyons, Jenny Nicholas Printmaker, Rosie Brunning Design, The Craft Chameleon.
